EVO 212, is this sound normal or noisy?

Letme

Hello every one, i have replaced Intel Stock fan with Cooler master EVO 212, the temp. fall down like 20 degrees which is good.

 

but the PC sound is more of what it was on Intel stock and i assume that the Fan is on 100% load even if the temperature is not that high.

 

anyway, please listen to this test and tell me if that normal for EVO 212 or not.

Hard to tell, but 700-800 RPM is not full speed for that fan. Cooler master specs say 2000 RPM is max for that fan. In that case, if the fan is running that slowly you shouldn't hear it at all. Could be a bad fan? 

 

Find a way to control the fan (either by using "speedfan" or your motherboard's software) and crank it up to 100%. It should sound like a "woosh" not like a rattling or vibrating. If it is, then A. either something is hitting the fan (a cable maybe?) or the fan is bad.

Are you sure that the sound is from the cpu fan and not something else? Stop the fan with your hand and see if the noise goes away.

It could be either. You could try booting the system with the hdd unplugged to see if the noise persists.

Or GPU. I would say its PSU or GPU more than HDD. HDD would be clear humming.

the issue that i have 1 ssd and 3 hdd and the inside case cable are not well arranged, i will check it but later. it is not a big issue, just wierd sound after installation of CPU cooler. and good that it is not the new fan.
